Emergency Brake Switch

I installed my emergncy brake assembly in my 69 Camaro today. There is a small white spring loaded switch where the wire plugs in . I assumed when you set the brake, the pedal would contact this and push it in to turm on the idot light in the dash, Trouble is nothing hits the switch to push it in. Do I have this switch on upside down ? The switch wire connection almost hits the fusebox when I push the switch in by hand. A picture would be great.

THANKS

Re: Emergency Brake Switch

There should be a small bracket that bolts to the hole in the pedal. This is what comes into contact with the brake switch.

Re: Emergency Brake Switch

madmax, do you or anyone have any idea where I can get that piece? Mine is also missing and it is so annoying having the light on all the time. I could take it out, but the if something were to go wrong with the system, I would be alerted. Thanks.

Re: Emergency Brake Switch

You might want to do a search here because I believe some of the guys were making there own. Don't see many on ebay but I would think a junk yard would be a good choice. Probably any early Chevy or Pontiac would work.

Re: Emergency Brake Switch

FWIW the pic shows the light on, it goes out when the brake is off and the bracket pushes the switch.

Re: Emergency Brake Switch

Does anyone know where I can get the actual switch part? when I press the switch manually with my fingers, the light on my dash only slightly dims when it should go out. Mine only has one tan wire plugged into the bottom.even if I unplug the wire from the bottom of the switch, the light on my dash stay lit..... somthing isn't right.

Classic Industries, P/N 14653, $17.99. It sounds like your sw is dirty or you have a bad ground as the sw takes the signal to gnd.
